DIY: Halloween Ribbon Wreath

You might not be the type to go all out this Halloween with cobwebs, fog machines, and yard decorations that heckle at passersby. But you can still be festive with a simple yet darkly gothic wreath. Wreaths are the ultimate non-decoration for any festivity; they're not fussy or complicated but they do give your front door some holiday curb appeal. To make this black grosgrain ribbon wreath from The Long Thread, all you'll need is a 12-inch foam wreath form, 24 yards of 1 1/4-inch black grosgrain ribbon (yes, that's a lot of ribbon!), scissors, and a measuring tape. To learn the steps,


Here's how:

  1. To begin, cut your ribbon into 45 to 50 16-inch pieces, and one piece of 48-inch ribbon.
  2. Tie one piece of the 16-inch ribbon in a messy knot around the wreath form by folding right over left twice, pulling in the opposite direction.
  3. Continue this until you've tied all the small pieces of ribbon, pushing them close together in between.
  4. The wreath should be full; if not, cut and tie more small pieces of ribbon.
  5. Now, tie and knot the long piece of ribbon around the wreath, leave a long loop and tie another knot at the other end.
  6. If there are any frayed edges trim them, and make sure the ribbon pieces are relatively the same length.
  7. Now, hang the wreath!
